Modernist de Passille Sylvestre Enamel Brooch Pin 1960s Design Quebec VFG


Brand Etsy

This is a wonderful early example of an enamel brooch made by Quebec jewelry artisans Micheline de Passille and Yves Sylvestre. The back of the brooch is hand signed M. de Passille -S, which is an early signature used by de Passille and Sylvestre, who started producing enamel jewelry in 1960.
The piece features a scimitar-like shape with raised polygon shapes enamelled in brown and outlined in black on a copper enamel background. The brooch measures 2 11/16 high. It is in very good condition with no wear, chipping or other defect.
Quebec produced some very good jewelry artisans during the 60s and 70s, with de Passille and Sylvestre considered amongst the best.....this is a wonderful enamelled brooch and, being an early piece, a great acquisition for the collector!
